Nakgaang (Gaangi: নাঃগঞ্জ), officially the Social State of Nakgaang (Gaangi: নাঃগঞ্জ সামাজিক রাষ্ট্র) is a sovereign country located in Central and Eastern Escar between the Quanhco Gulf and the Yurganian Sea. At 2.3 million square kilometers, Nakgaang is the [1st or 2nd] largest country in the world by surface area, and has the largest population in the world at 214 million people. Nakgaang is a unitary single-party socialist republic, with the Gaangi All-Peoples Front being the only legal political organization in Nakgaang. Nakgaang borders East Jiquan, Songthom, and Tsutikuo. The country hosts a variety of diverse topography with its main population center located in the Shivin plain. Nakgaang's capital and largest city is Mahesawar, with a population of 16 million.

Today Nakgaang is a partially developed great power with a steadily growing economy, and is a founding member of the Seventh Internationale, commonly known as ORCOM, and the Ordic League. Nakgaang is one of the few states in the world to possess nuclear weapons, and fields extensive chemical forces.

Etymology[edit]

The name Nakgaang (Gaangi: নাঃগঞ্জ) is translated as "Squares Land". The name supposedly was given by Turkic conquerors in the X Century who marveled at the extensive rice fields that dotted the Shivin Plain.

History[edit]

History of Namgiang

1200 BC-600 BC[edit]

Turkic tribes inhabit the Shivin and Suska Plains, forming early civilizations in the Shivin Plain.

600 BC-100 AD[edit]

Starting around 600 BC, major migrations from areas in Cathai led to the settlement of modern day Jiquan, forming the Shagaan Culture. Further migrations resulted in the Early Shivin Culture centered along the Vangha River. Originally the Shivin Plain was inhabited by Turkic tribes, but were eventually pushed out, integrated, or killed off.

In 200 BC the Late Shivin Culture arose, providing increased trade connections with Kuiju groups, Songese, and Cathai.

100 AD-500 AD[edit]

Several distinct Gaangi kingdoms are formed, with powerful city states arising especially along the southwestern coastline. The Quanhcoi Kingdom is formed after a series of bloody conquests. The Shivin Plain has several river based city states and kingdoms, while the coastal regions are dominated by Quanhcoi kings.

500 AD-630 AD[edit]

The Bulahuthish Kingdom became locked in a rivalry with the Quanhcoi Kingdom, resulting in the conquest of the mainland territories of the Kingdom of Quanhco. During this time Proto-Gaangi language is developed, and is made the official court language in the Bulahuthish Kingdom by 590 AD to help coalesce the myriad of local dialects and provide a tool for further political centralization.

640 AD-725 AD[edit]

The rise of [insert current religion] led to the disintegration of the Bulahuth Kingdom from internecine conflict between the traditional animist regions and the new [insert current religion]. The Bulahuth Kingdom built a new capital on the site of present day Uthali, and was general confined to the northeast. Meanwhile the Quanhcoi Kingdom went into a state of decline. The Chakdaha Kingdom became prominent in trading networks in the Quanhco Gulf and Crosswind Sea.

725 AD-1000 AD[edit]

[Maybe conquest of Quanhco by Bagan Kingdom?] The formation of the Chagal Kingdom in the northern Shivin Plain from migrating Uzhut tribes resulted in a series of wars against the Thakur Kingdom. The Battle of Hamtu Field led to the final collapse of the Bulahuth and Chagal Kingdoms when King Gohala and King Tossu met in battle. King Gohala killed King Tossu, and then died later in the day from serious injuries from the fight. The Thakur King Shur seized on the opportunity and brought the Chagal and Bulahuth Kingdoms under his control.

1000 AD-1291 AD[edit]

The Thakur Kingdom expanded its control onto the southern coastline, and conquered the northern Quanhco island. The expulsion of Turkics in the north allowed the Thakur Kingdom to focus its efforts on taking the Chakdaha Kingdom and coastal areas of northern Songthom. In 1118 the Thakur Empire was established. In the late 1200s the Thakur Empire underwent serious attacks from the Kuiju.

1291 AD-1420 AD (Kuiju Conquests)[edit]

The sacking of Mahesawar by the Kuiju Grand Ejenate led to Kuiju rule from 1291 until 1332, when the Kuiju Grand Ejenate splintered into several smaller Kingdoms. The Ejenate of Torgaang was ruled by Kuiju kings until 1420, when the Ejenate of Torgaang splintered due to lack of successor. This coincided with a major plague originating in Orda, which hit the Shivin Plain hard, killing nearly a third of the population.

1420 AD-1630 AD[edit]

1630 AD-1866 AD (Nakgaang Empire)[edit]

From 1733-1742 Nakgaang fought the Acharya-Mamun Succession War after the death of Emperor Acharya the Fourth. Mamun was crowned Emperor of Nakgaang.

late 1700s First Northern War Jiquan gets whooped.

1866 AD-1887 AD (Republican Era)[edit]

In 1862 the Nakgaang Empire decided to ally the Jiquanese Kingdom in its bid for its lost holdings in Shirakawa, with the hopes that a powerful Jiquanese ally would assist in retaking Songthom and the Quanhcoi Kingdom, kicking off the Second Northern War. In 1863 the Empire of Yamatai joined the war on the side of Shirakawa. In 1864 the Tulpan and Chagade Khagnates joined the war on the side of Shirakawa, and the Nakgaang Imperial Army fought several pitched battles in the Suska Plain. Maybe 1865 torching of imperial capital in Mahesawar? After the brief May Coup against the Imperial seat in 1866, the Gaangi Empire collapsed.

Initially the Republican landholders wished to maintain the Imperial seat as a honorary figurehead, but the death of the emperor due to a raging mob led to the declaration of a Republic. The new Republican government decided to ally Shirakawa and invaded the Tukdaaschar region. Gaangi troops fighting in Shirakawa were called back to Nakgaang, but many units refused to do so, attacking Shirakawan and Jiquanese forces in the battles of X and X, resulting in their complete destruction. Meanwhile, other Gaangi troops attempted to march back into Gaangi territory through Jiquan, with significant losses and attrition. In 1871 the Peace Treaty of X was signed, resulting in the Gaangi annexation of Tukdaaschar and formalization of the Quanhcoi Kingdom's independence.

The Tulpan Khagante was annexed by the Chagade Khaganate via succession in 1867, and the Republic of Nakgaang signed a treaty with the Khaganate turning it into a vassal state of the Republic.

In 1872, the Gaangi Republic invaded and occupied the Quanhco Islands, bringing an end to the Kingdom.

1887 AD-1939 AD (The Early Social State)[edit]

In the 1870s and 1880s, communist revolutionary thought sprung up, partly due to the incompetence of the Republic, the atrocities committed in the newly reoccupied territories, and the loss of territories and prestige to the Kingdom of Jiquan in the 1884 Dergi War. Sakarist Socialism became firmly entrenched in the urban areas. After the '87 riots and the Gulf of Quanhco Naval incident in 1886, the Republic's legitimacy was greatly questioned by the populace. The assassination of Deependu Sakar supposedly by the Republican government sparked the Gaangi Communist Revolution. The Gaangi Communist Revolution lasted from 1887 to 1892, with final victory laying in the hands of the All-Peoples Front. The new Social State of Nakgaang launched its program of National Reunification, with the establishment of school programs and the centralization of temple activities under the supervision of the new Sectors. In 1899, Communist Nakgaang launched an invasion of Songthom, but was quickly and bloodily repulsed by the Yashiman Imperial Army.

The failure to win the war resulted in a coup, with the top leadership being purged and executed. From 1900 to 1930 was a period of Five Year Plans designed to modernize Nakgaang. Education was reformed as being a joint venture between the Party and local temples.

1940 AD-Present (The Modern Social State)[edit]

1939-1944 endwar.

The post Endwar Gaangi politics were centered around managing and transitioning the occupations in East Jiquan and North Songthom. Diplomatic confrontation between the Allies, and Shirakawa in particular, and Nakgaang, marked the late 40s and 50s political scene. Reconstruction was also a major issue during this period, as the war left many portions of Nakgaang's major cities devastated. In 1952, the Central Committee decided to support the North Songthom invasion of Southern Songthom, despite misgivings from some Central Committee members, such as Foreign Office Secretary Rishabh Maitra, who mistrusted the Northern Songthom leadership's intentions. The same year Nakgaang recognized the Peoples Republic of Hinomoto and was incorporated into the Seventh Internationale. From 1952-1956 the Songthom War raged on, with Nakgaang providing several divisions worth of troops and large amounts of military aid to the Northern Songese.

In 1965 the Hinoan Crisis was caused by Gaangi Short Range Ballistic Missiles being stationed on Hinomoto. The Bay of Nishikawa Incident nearly caused a war to break out between Nakgaang and Shirakawa, and was the first time in the post Endwar era that the entirety of the All-Peoples Armed Forces were mobilized. After negotiations, the withdrawal of Gaangi nuclear forces from Hinomoto and Shirakawan nuclear forces from West Jiquan helped to cool tensions for a little while. Nakgaang then intervened in the (?Esc civil war?). In the 60s and 70s the Social Republic of Jiquan underwent serious unity issues as various splinter groups established bases of support in the south and central Jiquan. This led to Gaangi led negotiations between the factions and the central government under the Yichun Accords which allowed for high amounts of regionalism and autonomy while maintaining the nominal state. Following the Fuso Sea Incident in 1970, the newly formed Three Powers Alliance launched a bombing and naval blockade campaign against the island state.

Gaangi support of Hinomoto was strong for the first few years of the war, but after the failures to run the blockade and the testing of Yashiman nuclear weapons in 1976, Gaangi will to continue the fight was weakened, and Nakgaang began making attempts to negotiate with the Three Powers. In February 1976, an attempted coup of the Central Committee by Sakarist hardliners, mostly in the military, resulted in the April Government Crisis. Several clashes in Nakgaang between different military and security units occurred during April, as the Central Committee regained control over the country. The incident severely weakened Nakgaang, as the East Jiquanese government took the opportunity to distance itself from Nakgaang, and Songthom declared itself as the "new socialist power" of Escar, signalling a split between Nakgaang and Songthom.

Throughout the late 70s after the fall of Hinomoto, Nakgaang went into an economic recession, and thorough government reforms and purges of the armed forces left the bureaucracy in a mess. In Nakgaang this decade was referred to as "the Dark Decade". The collapse of the Gaangi diplomatic system in Escar led to various Gaangi initiatives to secure friendships outside the continent, beginning with an increased trade relationship between Svandary and Nakgaang in the 80s. The development of the Unwilling Buffer Strategy in the early 80s was also a major source of international controversy. In the 1982 Songese-Gaangi Border War, Gaangi forces were caught unprepared and unaware, resulting in serious military reforms that extended through the 1980s. In 1984, the Uzhut Insurgency broke out, as several military installations and government buildings were captured by the proclaimed Uzhut National Republic. The Gaangi Army was sent in, and after the bloody Siege of Bujukbir in 1986, the war ended. In 1989, the All-Peoples Armed Forces announced their 3.0 Doctrinal Publication for Unified War, dubbed the "Firepower Update", with a significant improvement of Gaangi doctrine on C4I, new recon-strike package technologies and force structures, a completely revised All-Peoples Aviation force structure and new multirole systems, and massive investment in conventional rocket forces. The Firepower Update helped transition the Gaangi Armed Forces into a highly flexible and modernized force.

After the 1999 Yellow Putsch in the SRJ, the Gaangi Aviation established no fly zones and conducted combat operations in the southern and central regions of East Jiquan to fight against regionalist splinter groups who were attempting to secede from the central government in Ambagurun. In 1999 Nakgaang and the SRJ formally ended the Yichun Accords. In 2001 Nakgaang launched Operation Forest Burn to defeat the regional groups. The intervention featured doctrinal lessons learned from the Uzhut Insurgency, and resulted in several atrocities being committed. The Operation was deemed a success by 2005, and Gaangi forces in the occupied areas were replaced by East Jiquanese units. In 2009 Nakgaang reintegrated the SRJ into the [INSERT ORCOM INTEL SHARING] to bolster their intelligence sharing ties, and in 2011 a permanent Corps military command was stationed in East Jiquan for the first time since the 1960s.

Politics[edit]

Politics of Nikhghiaangh


Nikhghiaangh is a unitary Single Party Socialist Republic with a Premier as head of state and government, and a Leading Party Member acting as chief whip. The country is run through the apparatus of the Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front (GAPF), the only legal party of Nikhghiaangh. The Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front is referred to as the government of Nikhghiaangh, due to the party apparatus and government structure being the same. All national party members must be members of the GAPF and swear allegiance to the Social State. This coupled with banning non-socialist members from the party has led to a restricted form of democracy.

The Premier of the State is selected by unanimous decision by the Central Committee. The Central Committee is the highest body in the Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front. The Central Committee is selected by the national party members of the Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front, and is usually based on seniority and political connections. Six out of the nine current sitting members of the Central Committee currently serve in the government as well as as national party members. The bureaucracy of the All-Peoples Front is split into four types: the legislature, the executive, the local governments, and the judiciary.

Judiciary[edit]

The High Inspection Committee is the highest court in Nikhghiaangh, with several lower courts being assigned to geographic regions.

Religion[edit]

Goba Bautroiism[edit]

. Bautroiism is a pantheistic religion with a belief in an impersonal essence, or Su Hien Dien (Giangi: सु हिएन डिएन), which guides the world and its processes through its nature. Bautroiism rejects the bifurcation of the afterlife, and instead postulates that the afterlife is a resting place of the souls until the rebirthing of the earth, where the souls are then recycled along with all matter in the universe.

Su Hien Dien's similarity to an anthropomorphic deity is sometimes confusing. However the Essential Chapters explain that it is within Su Hien Dien's nature to create and cycle, thus its actions are of impulse not of sentience or choice. According to the text the impersonal essence recycles the universe on the great parchment of life, where its power is painted onto the great parchment of life. The world and afterlife exist for a time, and then slowly melt off the parchment. Thus the spiritual souls, afterlife, and physical world collect into the Su Hien Dien's "essence" and it again stains the parchment with the recycled matter and souls. This rebirth continues for eternity.

Common to Bautroiism is a focus on moral behavior to honor Su Hien Dien (which manifests in people taking collective views of moral actions not for self betterment but out of respect for the higher powers), its extensive rituals to celebrate Su Hien Dien, and its pragmatic view of the future. The Bautroi Temples of Namgiang is the largest organization of Bautroiism, and maintains itself as the only moral organization. Many competing sects also exist, but they are usually much smaller and are discriminated against by the central government.

Minority Religions[edit]

Culture[edit]

Gaangi culture is diverse owing to its vast geography and population. Its relatively isolated position from the western Cathaic areas of Escar led to a unique cultural development path, but cultural diffusion via the Central Escaric Plain and Suska Plains, as well as through the Quanhco Gulf, has led to a heavily influenced culture.
